Who was bobby hull ?
Bobby Hull was a Canadian ice hockey player who achieved legendary status due to his impressive playing abilities. His blonde hair and super-fast skating earned him the nickname “The Golden Jet”, and many teams would assign a player strictly to shadow him whenever he was on the rink. Hull played for the Chicago Black Hawks, Winnipeg Jets, and Hartford Whalers in his 23 year career in the National Hockey League (NHL) and World Hockey Association (WHA). Such was his talent that he twice won the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL’s most valuable player, along with acquiring three Art Ross Trophies for leading points scorer in the league. Hull was even instrumental in helping the Black Hawks win their 1961 Stanley Cup. To top it off, he led Winnipeg Jets to Avco Cup championships upon transferral to WHA. Bobby Hull truly stands alone as one of the greatest players to ever grace the sport of hockey.
Bobby Hull family
Bobby Hull, a former NHL hockey star, has quite the sprawling family with his first wife Joanne. The couple was blessed with five kids – four sons, Bobby Jr., Blake, Brett and Bart and one daughter, Michelle – all of whom undoubtedly possess a bit of their dad’s renowned talent on the ice. Hull had an illustrious career that spanned 16 years in the NHL and an additional 12 in the WHA before he retired in 1980, but it’s clear that his true legacy will have nothing to do with sports. Each of his children have followed in their father’s footsteps as beloved members of their communities who strive to make people’s lives better not only through sports, but through charity work as well. This is truly a story about remarkable genes where creating a loving family is more important than any record-setting performance.

I don’t know as much about hockey as other sports. When the Hawks games were broadcast on WGN-tv when I was a child this man was “The Golden Jet” an enormous hero. Later because of unfortunate statements and revelations about his family life he was ostracized. He had grown up in bad circumstance that skewed his value systems, I believe. What’s even sadder is he had a daughter who seemed to dedicate her life to destroying his reputation. One happy note was after the Wirtz family finally sold the team the new owners brought Bobby and Stan Mikita back for public relations work. That was a long overdue happy note.
Cheers to your big smile Bobby! You always knew how to make people around you enjoy themselves! I know I did! Thank you for all you did for the sport you loved!
